There are several boat manufacturers who have gone by the name of Horizon over the years.  The boat of interest in this thread is the Horizon 39 - also the Nemo 39

If you own one of these fine vessels or know someone who does, Please encourage them to post.

THE HORIZON YACHT COMPANY

Horizon Yacht Company of Largo, Florida, manufactured the Horizon 39 during the 1980's. Barry Scharf owned the company. Barry commissioned yacht designer Burk Borges, who did many Morgan designs, to design the Horizon 39. The company built 30 – 40 of these boats during the 1980’s, and enjoyed the reputation as a quality cruising boat builder.

Most were sold as kits for “one of a kind” custom rig and deluxe interior fitting with custom plan, but several boats were completely finished and sold under the name NEMO 39. The price in 1984 for a finished NEMO 39 boat was $140,000.

In 1982, A bare hull with a deck started at around $30,000 with two transom styles: traditional for ketch and reverse for cutter/sloop plan. The company was expanding to include a 45’ model in addition to the 39 and 26 when the market for cruising boats collapsed.

The company went out of business in 1988.

HULL AND DECK CONSTRUCTION

Construction of hull was very high quality, using .06” Isothalic gel coats and laminating resin.
The 4 layers of 1.5 oz. mat and 24 oz. Woven roving were laid down longitudinally,over the full length of the hull, with 12” overlaps at the waterline, garboard area, and keel.
One additional layer was laid down from above the WL to mid-keel and 2 additional layers from mid keel to the centerline. When the hull was complete, a 4” inward turning hull flange was laminated to the upper 12” of the hull, doubling the thickness at the sheer. The production rate was slow, allowing each hull about 3 weeks in the mold. The hull mold was a one pieceslamination, heavily reinforced, and set on rollers.

The deck mold was adapted from Morgan 40 tooling. The deck lamination schedule included .06” ISO gel coat and 1.5 oz. Mat, 2 layers of mat and 24 oz. Woven roving, a 0.5” plywood core bedded with wet chop over all deck surfaces, including the cabin sides and 1 additional layer of 1.5 oz. Mat and 24 oz. woven roving.
Most Horizon boats were finished with traditional interiors.

The boat was listed in Cruising World (1998) as one the best off-shore ("blue-water") vessels available for under $100,000.  It did so primarily because of the following yacht design factors.


YACHT DESIGN FACTORS

DISP/LENGTH RATIO 331 (>300 = heavy cruiser)
SA/DISP RATIO 16.94 (>20 = “high performance”)
VELOCITY RATIO 1.04 (1 – 1.14 for cruiser)
BALLAST RATIO 0.41 (nominal for centerboard designs)
NOMINAL SPEED 6 - 6.5 Knots
HULL SPEED 7.34 Knots
MAX SPEED 7.78 Knots
COMFORT FACTOR 37.6 (Cruisers range between 30 – 40 )
CAPSIZE RISK 1.64 (SNAME data, from Fastnet race, <2 = good)
ROLL PERIOD 4.3 seconds (CB up)
MOMENT OF INERTIA 800,000
STABILITY INDEX 1.14 (1=stiff, >1.5=tender)

Most of my data for this resides on the boat - on the boat's computer.  When next there I will look up what I can find to assist .....

that would be great and very much appreciated. I also understand that the hull was a copy of sorts of the Morgan 40 and wonder if the mast and rigging system from that would work?  Is your mast keel or deck mounted?

I own a '80 Nemo 39 w/ the cutter rig. The spar is made by Kenyon, and it is keel stepped. I don't have the dimensions but could get them.
